Road to the Sun

By Felicia Morgan

Kalispell, Mont., Sept. 13—Thursday morning kicked off with rain, cold, and concern as riders were given a choice of going over the famous Logan’s Pass through Glacier National Park or a secondary, lower section of the park due to concerns for the old machine struggling over steep inclines, the descending declines with little to no braking power, and possible weather though the upper route, but none of the riders were daunted. Everyone took the high road and were rewarded with glorious vistas and an incredible riding experience. As the international group of motorcyclists stood at the halfway point and enjoyed the brilliant fall foliage against the breathtaking mountains, riders expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to experience America’s roadways and the magnificence of Mother Nature’s splendor. For the staff who had to backtrack the route for stragglers and came in late themselves, their experience included snowfall. Otherwise, riders just arrived at the evening finish in Kalispell, Montana, rain soaked but elated over the day’s ride.

Stage 13 will take the group over 254 miles into Washington’s Spokane Valley for a hosted dinner at Lone Wolf Harley-Davidson where the riders will have their bikes on display until 6:00 p.m. Every is invited to come on out and share in the fun.
